Italian Patty Melts

When you’ve used up all your leftover turkey and want something other than poultry, here’s a great recipe to make.  Bring on the beef!  I adapted this recipe for Italian Patty Melts from one I found in a Simple and Delicious Magazine.  The patty is nice and tender thanks to some egg, bread crumbs, and spaghetti sauce. 

It’s basically like having an Italian hamburger.  A tasty beef patty placed on garlic bread topped some spaghetti sauce and cheese.  So yummy.  You won’t be disappointed.  My oldest son really loved this one.  You could also add some garlic to the meat if you want more flavor.
